"The hardest part about life is living." That profound quote can be found all over the Internet in varying styles, but the message is the same, and very true. Life is simply hard to live, and depression is a very real thing that effects countless people on this planet. The thing about depression is, that it's hard to explain. It's hard to let out how you're feeling, rather than just looking downtrodden all the time. Depression doesn't just effect the person, but the people around them.

2. she never quits on herself or me
3. she gives me time to work on my crazy projects
4. she makes me laugh, everyday
5. she is gorgeous

It was exactly what she needed after some of the things she's been dealing with: "I've been juggling a LOT lately. Trying to do well at work. Just got married. Couldn't afford a wedding. Family is sparse. Falling out with friends."

Trying to do well at work. Just got married. Couldn&#039;t afford a wedding. Family is sparse. Falling out with friends, yaddadyadda. But, the thing is, amidst all the struggle, my husband has relentlessly tried to cheer me up. I&#039;ve not been the easiest person to deal with. In fact, sometimes I&#039;ve lost all hope and even taken my frustration out on my new husband. But he somehow forgives me every time. I have a long journey ahead of me, and I know he probably realizes I&#039;m depressed. But he holds my hand, and he tries his best. Today when I came home from a trip to SF, I flopped onto my bed in tears. I looked to my left, and saw these words painted all across my mirror. I think he wanted me to remember how much he loves me. Because he knows how quickly I forget. He knows I struggle to see good in the world, and especially the good in myself. But here it is. A testament and gesture of his love. Damn, I needed it today...I&#039;m not saying mental illness is cured by nice words on a mirror. In fact, it takes professional care, love, empathy, sometimes even medication just to cope. Many people struggle with it mental illness - more than we probably even realize. And instead of showing them hate or anger when they act out. Show them kindness and remind them things can and WILL get better. Everyone needs a little help sometimes. If that person can&#039;t be you - see if you have any resources for therapy.EDIT: The thing is... I am not &quot;too good&quot; or &quot;not good enough&quot; for my husband. We all have our down days. And sometimes we don&#039;t handle it well. BUT, we are partners. He is here for me when I&#039;m down. And I cherish that. And he has his down days, too. And I will be there to hold his hand, just like he holds mine. Life can be hard. The answer is never to mock, scoff, or belittle someone. Be kind. Be the best version of yourself. And be most of all- be patient.I&#039;m still struggling, but I&#039;m glad I have my other half to help me make it through. It may just be a few words on my mirror, but I&#039;ll look at them when I wake up and know I&#039;m not alone. I&#039;ll know I have my bestfriend, my co-pilot in life to help guide me through.

What truly stick out here is the moment she realized that she did in fact have this supportive person in her life.

"I think he wanted me to remember how much he loves me. Because he knows how quickly I forget. He knows I struggle to see good in the world, and especially the good in myself. But here it is. A testament and gesture of his love. Damn, I needed it today..."

If you or somebody you know also needed or needs something like this, let them know or do it for them. Little reminders we're not alone in this often times terrifying world is what it takes.

Here's to this newly-wed wife getting through her struggles and reciprocating the love and support when her husband has his moments of weakness and is in need of her strength. This note is a true testament to the power of love in our lives. Never forget that the people around you are there for you.
